About Kirsten Tyler
I have been married to Kym since 1996 and live together with our teenage son, Jameson, two Labradoodles and two Russian blue cats. We grow some grapes, a few black Angus cattle and our own vegetables on our property in the beautiful Adelaide Hills in South Australia. My work is predominantly managing our three beach holiday rental houses, located on the gorgeous Fleurieu Peninsula, about an hours drive from our home. I am passionate about gardening and travel, both of which I have been lucky enough to indulge in. My preference is to be outdoors, and I enjoy cycling, kayaking, hiking and paddle boarding (not very well!). I'm more fun than that.... I adore spending time with friends and family at home, or passing an afternoon at one of the many wineries in our local area. Catching up for a coffee, breakfast out on Saturday mornings after gym, a movie and dinner, or the beach - always on the radar!

Friends’ weekend away
This was a lovely property - my second time staying here. We enjoyed the location near the Star of Greece and also enjoyed visiting Willunga and McLaren Vale that weekend. The house itself is ideal for groups of friends (we are school friends for 30 years) or two families. Thank you to Kirsten for the great communication.
Wine weekend with friends at McLaren Vale
Pretty good property for 8 people - I thought the place was tidy and provided all the facilities needed. Although a bit tired eg floor boards could do with a polish. Very handy location to the wine area and nice to be close to the Star of Greece which was a very nice place to eat.
Thanks Stephen - glad you got your payments finally sorted out and enjoyed your time at Whiteport. Cheers Kirsten
Appreciate the feedback re floorboards - Whiteport has just undergone complete renovation including new floors, and its beautiful again!
A cosy winter retreat!
Whiteport is well laid out, with separate living area for kids, clean and roomy, with everything we could have wanted for a weekend retreat.
It is comfortable and warm, and the perfect winter getaway. Close to the beach, restaurants and wineries!
Owner was very helpful and suggested some highlights in the area.
Hi we loved the house, it was well appointed, in a good location with good views BUT it was very cold and noisy. Apart from the road noise you could clearly hear conversations and people moving about the house next door. We found the lack of heating a real issue - we spent the evenings huddled under blankets trying to get warm. Lastly we found the list of instructions of how to leave the house quite insulting - we have paid good money to spend time in the house. Of course we will leave it good order but we are not the cleaners for the next tenants.
Hi Elizabeth - we are so glad you loved Whiteport and found it well appointed and in a great location. Our many, many feedbacks from other guests reflect this and they also appreciate the cleanliness of our property. Our reverse cycle air-conditioning upstairs and downstairs ensures that our visitors are cosy, and plenty of extra blankets are provided for beds too. The thermostats simply needed turning from air-conditioning to heating mode during the cold snap last week.
Included at Whiteport between every rental is 3 hours cleaning by professionals who make sure Whiteport sparkles, and we just require that guests check that the house is left tidy and in good order before they depart.
It’s a shame you didn’t discuss with us any issues you had at the time - we are always happy to give advice on how anything operates if instructions aren’t clear enough. A two star rating from you was quite unexpected and very disappointing as we try hard to provide well for our guests.
Weekend girls escape.
Whiteport was the perfect location for us.plenty of room for 9 girls to sleep and wuthin walking distance to the beach. All agree that we will be back. Willunga farmers market then Mclaren Vale wineries.
Hi Carol - thanks for taking time to give us feedback. It’s great to hear that you enjoyed some of the great highlights of the region. We hope to have you stay again sometime. Cheers Kirsten
Great space for large or multiple families
Great house that we shared with extended family. Great space with two living areas, multiple bathrooms and very nicely presented. Thank you for accomodating us and your timely communication.
Hi Kym - I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Whiteport. Thank you for the great feedback - we hope you’ll be back. All the best, Kirsten
